Xbox 360 slim turns itself on/off and opens/closes tray

The Xbox 360 slim started to turn itself on/off and opening/closing its tray. I've plugged the console in a power socket on its own (it seems to have mitigated the issue, but not completely solved it) and removed the batteries from the TV's remote in case it was causing interference (no luck with that).

Would appreciate any suggestions as to how to proceed. The console's warranty expired two months ago, so sending it for repair isn't (unfortunately) my first option.

Thanks.

I carefully disassembled the console and found out where the problem was: the ribbon that connects the eject and power buttons to the motherboard. It was a bit loose and probably caused contact problems. Have been playing for more than 1 hour without any problems =)

Thanks!
